In theory, I am always "in" for this challenge, because even though my progress is slow, I'm always targeting this list.

So let's make it official: I'm in.

I'm in.

Does what I watched earlier today count? I watched it before this thread was made, but it was still the same day.

Anything you've seen today counts. I'd like to keep this thread going until the next update. Hopefully i'll be close to finishing it by then.

1.Stardust Memories 1980

Some great lines and scenes in this film, including sending up film criticism, a gem from Woody Allen.

31 to go if I can track them down- I do not include The Art of Vision in this, as at the moment it is not available to me.

1. A nos amours (1983) 8/10

I loved the acting and the cinematography. I cared about what was going on with Suzanne and the casual violence against her was depressing.

In. Earlier today I watched:

1. Taira Clan Saga 6/10 - okay, but am I blaspheming if I don't find 12th century Japanese politics that interesting? Thought this was one of the weaker Mizoguchis I've seen.
2. Mother India 5/10 - melodrama to the max, had some good but it was all too much, esp as the miseries just piled on in the 2nd half.

I have 54 remaining in total.

I'm in.

I have 571 unchecked (counting "Histoire(s) du cinema" as one film), but I'll focus on the films that just dropped off, since they are nominated for the Doubling.

25 to go. 47 in the old lists. Also do shorts count as an entry for this challenge?

ICM tells me I now have 287 left. Seems a big jump backward for me-- maybe I need the nudge of a challenge!

Are we to list how many we have left after each new entry, then?

I think i'll let shorts count as one entry. I was always against counting them less than feature length films. I don't care if someone racks up 40 shorts on this list. We're hardly competing anyway.

I wasn't complaining ("You mean we have to list that, too?!" :D ), just asking for clarification. In fact, it seems like a lot for you to record, even if we do give you our films-remaining number each time.

EDIT: Come to think of it, my TSPDT number is listed under every post I make on here anyway! :)

I didn't take it as a complaint. I'll update every couple of days. Whoever doesn't post how many they have left, i'll do it myself. I'll keep track of everything. I'll have the time.

But if we're also watching films that dropped off the list, it might get complicated.

I'm pretty sure most people will stick to films on the most recent update. If the total isn't exactly right, it's no big deal. I can always check the icm profile. Not many people will notice the OP anyway.

I will still record how many everyone has seen. This is just a bit extra.

Wishful thinking, 346 on TSPDT, In the Mood for Love for example made in 2000 is at No 59 Mulholland Drive 2001 no 69, Tree of Life already at No 355, this is some competition from some films from the 2000s and later.

1. Jeux interdits (1952) 6/10 684
2. Chimes at Midnight (1965) 6/10 181 these ranks will be wrong after they add the extra histoire(s), fantomas, etc. but whatever.
I've got 528 left.
